This letter was sent to Rabbi Shneur Zalman Duchman, one of the active members of the chassidic brotherhood.

B”H, 19 Teves, 5709

Greetings and blessings,

I am acknowledging receipt of your seventh and eighth let­ters. Enclosed is the kuntreis published for 24 Teves, a letter from my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe Shlita, and a letter from Machne Israel.1 Please endeavor [to spread] the messages contained within [to broad spectrums of the Jewish commu­nity], for their content is not only limited to chassidim.

Under separate cover, you were sent as per your request: the [Rebbe’s] Memoirs;the sichos of Pesach, 5703; the second collection of letters; and the address to [Jewish] women. Please acknowledge your receipt of them and share them with people at large.

It is obvious that my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe Shlita, knows that you are sending your memoirs here, [of which] he said: “This is a very appropriate matter.”2 Similarly, from time to time, I relate the gist of several of the stories to him and this generates satisfaction each time.

With good wishes, while awaiting to receive the continua­tion of your memoirs,

Rabbi Menachem Schneerson
